A quick weekly plan for you:
Author Dave Haslam is signing copies of his new book Life After Dark, a history of the British nightclub scene. If you're a writer I'd love for you to guest-blog this. Hit me up.
If you're a Wordpress user, meet fellow bloggers using the platform at Manchester Wordpress User Group's monthly meetup. It's their Christmas party, so leave the car at home! Join them at Madlab on Edge St in the Northern Quarter.
If you're a film fan, you'll be more than aware of the new Star Wars film being touted as the big hit this Christmas. I'm looking forward to it, admittedly. I've found an impressive deal on the Manchester Evening News' site. If you're not in work on a Thursday, or can book it off, and fancy watching the film and chowing down on some Almost Famous burger, then make a move quickly: this offer's gonna be snapped up. Midnight screening, anyone?
Anyone fancy some ales and cocktails? Font bar is the perfect place, just off Oxford Rd next to the train station, and Young Professionals in Manchester may be the ideal group. You won't know unless you try, of course...
You're probably more than aware that there's a new Star Wars film coming out. If you fancy watching it and meeting new people at the same time, (obviously before and after the film) check out Manchester Film Fans. They're meeting in the afternoon.
If you're out a little later, join me and Manchester Social Group for some drinks in Spinningfields. We're starting in The Alchemist for some inventive cocktails, after which we'll probably head into The Avenue for more posh drinks.
A book signing at Nexus Art Cafe with Karen Little. More events happening at Nexus as the month progresses.
I don't just want to reproduce content online- if I can find events happening that are not listed elsewhere, I'll put them here. If you see anything you think I should include, particularly if it's not online yet, tweet me the text or a pic please!
